  1. Kennice Thornberry

    I have struggled with adult acne and rosacea primarily on the left cheek for about 4 years now. The redness is constant. breakouts are not constant but they are consistent and happen somewhat often. I’ve tried so many products. Step by step routines, mix and matching different brands, etc . Sometimes I thinkI’ve found what works and my skins ok for a while and then I start to break out again.Anyways I’ve been using this product for about a week. I started using it in the middle of a really bad breakout on my problem cheek and let me tell ya I was praying for an over night miracle. That didn’t happen lol however I did start to see some improvement. The pimples themselves were not as sore and over the course of a couple days I did see a significant difference (less red, pimples much smaller, never coming to a head) . Just like other customers it did dry my skin out tremendously. I was still moisturizing nightly after applying these products and I’d wake up everyday with my skin flaking the area I was applying product to the night before. I’ll use extra moisturizer if it means my face clears up though.All in all I am happy with the results so far. If anything changes I will updated my review .I did add some photos to show what my results look like after using twice a day, for 7 days.Day 1 in the black and brown tie dye shirt and day 7 in the grey shirt

    I haven’t had any sensitivity issues. It’s just an overall good product. I first heard of it from the Today show and I bought it. I have not been disappointed. My skin looks and feels so much better. I just upgraded and purchased some of their other products. I think I’m going to stick with this for awhile.

  3. maria d andrade

    I really like this product. The problem is I ordered a travel kit to see if it worked for me. When I received this product, the bottles were half empty. Mind you it’s a travel kit so bottles are small. BUT… you get half the product from each wee little bottle! They should do better than that!

  4. S. Yoo

    My teenage daughter seems to see/feel a difference. I’m pretty sure this doesn’t work that fast, but my daughter was unhappy with 2 other well-known (and $$) acne brands. So, I take this as good! If something can make a teenager feel good about their skin, it’s a win. Will buy again if she’s still happy after a few weeks

  5. StrikerF16

    I have tried EVERYTHING for my acne. EVERYTHING. Nuetrogena, La Roche-Posay, Differin Gel, Alba Botanica’s acne dote, random stuff from the store, a mix of cetiphil soap and hibbacleanse (is that how you spell it?), and even nothing at all. Everything either gave me a permanent sunburn, made my skin peel/flake, or gave me more acne. Ever since I was 12 years old, I’ve been searching and searching for the right product. I think this is it. I ordered the regular strength travel size, and I love it. The first thing you will notice about Paula’s Choice trial size is that it is, well, tiny. The bottles are VERY small. But don’t let that get you down. I found that the small size is actually helpful, because it helps you conserve the product and not use too much, which could cause irritation. Tip: The instructions on the bottle may not always be the instructions for your skin. What I mean by this is that sometimes we all can be very tempted to follow the “use one to three times a day” instructions the brand gives us, though our skin is individual and unique and may require more or less, depending on skin sensitivity, severity of acne, etc. I started using the cleanser in the evening, then I washed with a normal cleanser the next morning, and then I used the cleanser, toner, and treatment, that evening. The next day, I started using the cleanser and toner in the morning and all three of them at night. That is what I have been doing for the past 3 weeks, and there is still about 1-2 weeks left I think in the bottles! The next thing I want to say is IT DOES NOT WORK MIRACLES! It’s not going to just magically clear up your acne overnight. it’s going to take time, and you’re going to have to have some patience. I’ve been using it for three weeks and have seen some great improvement! But the first 1-4 days I didn’t see much of a difference at all. I have really, really bad acne on the sides of my face and on my chin/jaw area. I get pimples a lot on my cheeks and forehead too, but the chin/jaw and sides of my face near my ears has the worst acne; with bright, big, red and very painful pimples. This acne treatment really helped prevent new pimples from forming, it made the existing ones smaller and less painful, and it makes my skin feel and look way better. I’m not really sure what the anti-redness stuff does, but the other things have helped. One last tip: Make sure you have a good face sunscreen and moisturizer before using this. Benzoyl peroxide is known to dry out your skin and make it more prone to sunburns. So, grab yourself a really great sunscreen that won’t cause acne, and a moisturizer that is you a rich, and non-greasy. I use Alba Botanica’s aloe and green tea moisturizer, and it is absolutely perfect with this product.Bottom Line: Get your skin used to this treatment before you use it full-on, have patience, and team it with good moisture and sun protection!I totally recommend this product, so if you’re still on the fence, GET IT! The trial size is very low-commitment, and won’t make your acne worse, so there’s really no reason NOT to try this! Hope your story is as happy as mine! 🙂

    I’ve been using it for over 2 months, and my skin looks smoother and healthier. When using the benzoyl peroxide, be careful when applying it too close to the eyelids or eyes, or the else the skin begins to dry out. Make sure to moisturise frequently and apply some sunscreen. It works really well, but you’ve also got to take your skin type into account when using it.

  7. Jonquie

    Works wonders! Don’t doubt the purchase but use it consistently twice per day!!! Morning and night!!! Keep using it don’t give up!! Took me 3-5 weeks to see results so happy with this product and my skin is also black!

  8. Logan Reed

    At first it seemed great like it was working, i was very hopeful as i struggle with mild acne & hormonal break outs every month. The texture of my skin also was getting out of hand. So i bought this thinking yes this will work. I used it for 3 days, once a day (at night) when i realized my face was extremely itchy.. and getting worse as the days were going on. Then my face was getting really tight & red… I’m like this isn’t good. So i skipped 2 days.. my face went back to normal then tried again.. same thing happened.I do not recommend if you have sensitive skin. It did help with my acne but the side effects weren’t worth the acne free skin…
